USC Viterbi School of Engineering's Partnership with The National GEM Consortium

The The National GEM Consortium’s mission is to enhance the value of the nation’s human capital by increasing the participation of underrepresented groups (African Americans, American Indians, and Hispanic Americans) at the master’s and doctoral levels in engineering and science.

The University of Southern California-Viterbi School of Engineering has a long standing partnership GEM that aims to assist this dynamic organization in meeting these goals. Viterbi recipients of the GEM Fellowship are some of the nations top performing students in math, science, and engineering.
